An Update at 38 weeks, 5 days

We had our dr appointment on Thursday afternoon.  At that time we decided to schedule an induction for sometime next week.  The dr is still hoping I will go into labor on my own, but we want this as a back-up plan.  So, for the week of March 18th.  Jeff and I will work from home on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.  (BTW - Monday is our anniversary and the day that I am really hoping that Lillie decides to make her entrance.)  Thursday, March 21 we will go to the hospital about 4pm to start the induction.  Which means our little Lillie should be here by Friday late afternoon/early evening which is March 22.  My mom's birthday is March 23, so this will be her first birthday as a Grandma.

So between now and then I am going to try to get some rest and try to keep everything organized and try to induce labor myself...walking, cleaning, just moving!

Yesterday we went and did some returns and I picked up the cream colored tights for Lillie to wear at Easter!  They are so tiny.  (BTW - Dr is guessing Lill's weight to be 7-7.5 at birth, we shall see!)  We also got her a pair of sunglasses!  They have a tiara on them and are so stinking cute I just can't stand it.  No idea what I will wear for Easter, but she is all set.  They did have a pair of shoes, but I decided that it was extremely silly to buy shoes for a 1 week old.  They looked too big anyway.  She can go without shoes to church!

Can't wait for this week!!!


  1. Sounds you have an exciting week ahead. I can't wait to see her in her Easter outfit.

  2. Well I guess next week will be life-changing for you -- Yeah!!!! If she is born on Friday that will make her and Jack 1 week apart (that i if he comes on the 29th when I am scheduled)!!!

    Lots of Hugs & can't wait!!! Ashley
